was a navy corpsman, and my experience is that e7, e8, e9 ratings, chief petty officer to master chief, those ratings tend to run the outfit that i have been involved in. we have had officers who have come aboard our ship, junior officers, and the chiefs were the ones who kind of took them in hand and showed them the ropes about how to operate. i think having an enlisted man with that kind of experience will be helpful as far as the defense department is concerned. he will know what the enlisted man is facing on the ground. that is all i have to say right now. host: in fact, here is a picture of chuck hagel in vietnam in 1968. this is in the "financial times" this morning.

delivered distinguished service to his country in the navy and the democratic party and the people of this country as the 2004 presidential nominee for the democratic party. he is really a brilliant man. he was a debater at yale and won awards for his skilled oratory. before he graduated college, he was a local critic of the vietnam war. upon graduation, senator kerry volunteered to serve in the united states navy, and serve he did. later he said, "did i it because it was the right thing to do." senator kerry learned the value of service at home. his father was a foreign service officer. his mother a nurse during world war ii. he served two tours as a navy lieutenant in the jungles and rivers in vietnam. he was awarded the silver star for his gallantry, a bronze star for valor also, and three purple hearts. but even after his service in the war, his opposition continued. on april 22, 1971, senator kerry became the first vietnam veteran to testify before congress about the war, when he appeared before the senate foreign relations committee, which was chaired by the famous senator fu
's the automatic target to shrink. it's harder to shrink the navy and air force. you have a certain amount of equipment you have to fly and sail and a certain amount of staffing you have to have in order to do it. >> holman: but thomas donnelly thinks further service personnel cuts would be unwise. >> my view is that the force is too small. it's been too small for a long time. we could not fight iraq and afghanistan properly at the same time. we've always had a so-called "two-war construct" so we could do two things at once. and that's kind of the definition of what it's been to be a global power. >> holman: another way to make budget reductions could come from reforming what's called tricare, the health care insurance system for soldiers, their families, and retired veterans, according to adams. >> the health care system is as out of control as health care costs in the country as a whole, and expensively administered. it's now a $50 billion a year system going up to $60 billion a year very quickly. it's about 10% of the defense budget just in the health care system. >> holman: those cover
when he was a pilot in the united states navy. is he a good pilot or bad pilot? yes or no. there could have been a malfunction in one of the aircraft. they are trying to pigeonhole chuck hagel as a dove, someone who is not going to seek the strong interests of the united states, and isn't schooled up on policy. i remember that surge in iraq. there was a raging debate in this country as to how involved we would have to get to finish off what we started in iraq and senator hagel was against it at the time because he was thinking about the amount of resources and money we were going to spend that wasn't being accounted for. and so it's a complex answer. it's not a yes or no answer which, of course, mccain likes to put into a box. the other thing about syria, where is the march? where is the cry from the american peel right now to go get involved in somebody else's war? we don't have the resources right now. you can't put a number on death before we do get involved in something like this. and the american people aren't yearning to get into another conflict in syria. it's not our fight righ

and perspectives. we both love the navy. i still do to this day. but i have different feelings from john about a war. for both of us, vietnam was a demarcation point in our lives the way it was for so many of our generation. but here in the senate late one night on a codel -- for people listening who don't know, codel is a trip of senators, congressmen going somewhere in the world -- we were going to kuwait after the first gulf war. and john and i found ourselves on a c-130 sitting opposite each other, neither of us could sle sleep, so we talked. we talked late into the night about our lives and our war. shortly thereafter, george mitchell and bob dole threw us together on a select committee to investigate the fate of americans missing from the war in which we'd fought. it was a tough time, an emotional issue in an era where rambo was a box office smash and "newsweek" magazine cover printed provocative photos which asked whether americans were still alive over there. into that cacaphonous caldron, john mccain and i were thrown together. some were suspicious of both of us. but together we found
